Description

Moore et al.’s “Collection-Based Persistent Digital Archives” provides a brief view into the design and development of a persistent email archive that housed over a million messages, a project that offered students at Cornell personalized library services, and an effort to digitize a massive amount of images for a project in the UK. In the three associated articles, the authors break down their process of designing, and implementing a digital archiving system into four components: support for ingestion, archival storage, information discovery, and presentation of the collection. They define the ingestion process as the process of including, and documenting objects while “wrap[ping them] as XML digital objects,” and cataloguing them for future retrieval. The storage phase is broken down into similar stages where objects, collections, and containers are defined through the application of metadata. Their information discovery, and presentation stages involve the development of software, interfaces, referents, and representations for archived objects.
